$5 Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin Fun!

I am so excited about this AMAZING SALE!  Perfect timing as I was about to post these pictures of past Paper Pumpkin projects (say that 3 times fast). 

Get ready for a flash sale! Starting at 7:00 PM (ET) on Thursday June 9th, get your first Paper Pumpkin kit for only $5 USD. Don’t miss this one!

When the sales begins on Thursday use promo code “ONEDAYDEAL”  at the link below:

Until Friday before 11:50 PM (MT), which is actually Saturday 1:50 AM Eastern Time.

Below are some samples of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  It came with both card bases that had 2 different style laser cuts (see below), orange corrugated pieces to fit behind the cut openings, "Happy" stickers in cursive and block lettering, Accessories, and envelops of course.   Every month you get a stamp set and an Ink Spot, or two. (small 1" square ink pads).  You will also receive everything you need to complete the cards, including adhesive! 


This is the basic design in the May 2015 Kit 


I added a sentiment to the inside and attaching the suggested backing for the inside front to the inside back of the card...just to be different.


For the above I used the sticker (Happy) as a stencil. When I realized I liked the color the sticker turned, I added it with the Happy repeated at the bottom.


Just a slight difference from the original design above.


For the one on the left, I added a bow by using it with one of the corrugated 'inside' pieces cut using the Bow Builder Puncher. 
For the one on the right, I had inked up the grids from the card front in Old Olive & Always Artichoke inks then trimmed it out of the card front (see the card on the left? It's the same as the bottom piece, turned upside down)  I thought it looked liked trees so adhered the 'grid'  and I made it a Christmas card.  


For this one I wanted to completely change the design, but I love the basic cards that came with the kit.  Behind the 'grid' I adhered a piece of Specialty Designer Series Paper from the New Affectionately Yours #141532 ($13) and created the flower design & sentiment from the stamp set, Love & Affection #141545 (Photo-polymer $16).

When you join Paper Pumpkin through me (https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=33608) you will receive a variety of ideas on how to use the pieces in the kit to create something different than the basic design, like those above.  

Here's a sample of what were created with the kit from the April kit, which was this darling wreath.  




I created this card using the left over pieces from the wreath leaves. The flowers are from a special additional stamp set that Stampin' Up! included in April to celebrate Paper Pumpkin's 3 year anniversary!  What a nice gift! 

If you have any questions about this Amazing Promotion, please let me know.  I will be happy to chat, email, Facebook, or text!

More fun ideas to come!
